TDOT says no lane closures over Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - The Tennessee Department of Transportation says there will be no road closures on state highways and interstates over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

TDOT says it will open all construction-related lanes starting on Wednesday and running through Monday morning.

Commissioner John Schroer says that the move comes amid projections that 1 million people will travel by car in Tennessee this weekend.

TDOT stresses that while lane closures will be halted, there may still be road workers in some construction zones. Speed limits will still be enforced in work zones, where violations can cost up to $500 if workers are present.

Updated travel and construction information can be found on the TDOT SmartWay website at http://www.tn.gov/tdot/tdotsmartway or by calling 511.
